Great characters, but a little cramped
" Looks great, lots of neat accessories, and two great characters to play with. If only you had some room to do anything with them.
The set is just big enough to build Luke's man cave and to cram in both mini-figures on opposite sides of the house. If you are looking to re-create any scenes, have a training montage, or do anything other than have spin Rey in circle and have Luke stand around with a stick you'll have to find it elsewhere. You can only have Rey break the boulder so many times. There really isn't much room for the imagination to take flight. What if Kylo Ren shows up? No room for a right here. I guess he and Luke could drink a cup of coffee and feed berries to a porg.
I guess that I am saying here is that they could have included a larger base plate. This feels more like part of a larger set than something meant to stand alone.
For that reason I have to give this a 2-brick rating for Play Experience. You have two great characters here but you'll have to take them elsewhere for them to have an adventure. But the characters and good enough that I do recommend getting this, especially if you some of the other set's and enjoy mixing and mingling to create your own, non-canon stories and cross-overs. "

A little ridiculous and a lot of fun
" It's good fun to have these little guys around. They are a little ridiculous and a lot of fun to play with (recreate your favorite scenes!).
When you are done with that they make excellent knick-knacks and look great between a photo of grandma and a little succulent. "

YT-1300 Under Construction
" I was lucky enough to find a very small window that this was available right before Christmas and so, about 25% through, I have decided to write my review.
I’ve hit that point in the build where I am tired of following instructions and decided that I needed to write this review, be creative for a little while, and build something of my own. Therefore, I spent the last 6 hours building a construction site out of the pieces I am supposed to use in the next step. I still think it worth it, even knowing that I going to have to tear it all down in a few minutes. There are too many pictures of completed models anyways.
This build and it has been super fun so far. I am finding the level of detail amazing and surprising at some of the things which were included. I was not expecting to find the gun that pops out of the bottom of the ship for that one scene on Hoth but there it is!
I like it when old pieces are repurposed as parts of a new model. Keep your eyes open; there is definitely something which looks suspiciously like a jackhammer somewhere on the hull. Sadly, no barrels, washtubs, or wheels used were for engines. I for one loved those on some of the other sets and I really hope that Lego never goes down the road of making custom pieces for absolutely everything.
The characters included are great and Chewy’s bowcaster even shoots little red things. I didn’t expect to find a projectile weapon ever since Lego discontinued those cannons that fired cannon balls back in the ‘80’s. Speaking of cannons, you might have noticed that my shipwrights look a little bit like men out of time. Which reminds me that I need to break all of that down and move on. "

A Riveter in the Imperial Shipyards
" I have been buying Legos for years (since about 1986) but had taken a long break for a while. Never before did I have the convenience of numbered bags associated with each step. I was used to just dumping all of the pieces into a box and sifting through. My last set purchased was the Star Destroyer (10030): 3104 pieces with no help from the packaging. A nostalgic part of me misses that swish-swish-swish of the brinks against each other and the hours spent scouring the box for that last tiny piece that you saw five minutes ago when you didn’t need it.
The numbered bags made the process feel a lot more efficient, but I began to feel like I was on an assembly line. Eventually, however, I began to appreciate the feeling and found serenity and relaxation in going through the steps without the long searching. I began to feel like I was a riveter assigned to the Imperial shipyards, working diligently to construct the countless TIE fighters needed by the Empire.
In fact, I stopped the build for an entire day to sort out the hull plating and construct my own little shipyard along with a few droids to help with the work. I don’t know why a pilot was working to install hull plating. Perhaps the Empire was low on skilled labor due to certain setbacks and major construction initiatives. Maybe next time I’ll dig out some pirates and let Captain Redbeard supervise the construction.
Finally, I realize that I am reviewing a product which has been discontinued for a year but there may be others, like me, who will find it at other stores. It’s a lot of fun so go pick one up. "
